Comedian John-Luke Roberts is to host Sound Heap, a podcast of infinite podcasts with some of Britain’s funniest stars.
Part-written and part improvised, Sound Heap is a sketch show presenting an infinite number of parodies, spoofs, and absurd ideas as if they were real podcasts, from laugh-out-loud jokes to interviews, documentaries, pranks, advice segments and listener call-ins.
Combining his skills as a writer and comedian, John-Luke Roberts will record with dozens of comic guests including Tom Allen, Isy Suttie and Deborah Frances-White, who improvise different types of podcasts over the course of the session, which are cut up and distributed throughout all episodes.
From Auddy, makers of Cold Case Crime Cuts and Stealing Victory, Sound Heap is a 12-part podcast series made up of many more podcasts within, written and hosted by John-Luke Roberts and produced by Ed Morrish.
John-Luke Roberts said: “A few months ago I discovered that I was one of only three people in the country not to have a podcast. I wanted to put that right and have made up for my late start by making loads and loads and loads of them.”
Ed Morrish, producer of Sound Heap added: “In a world where just about every podcast you can think of exists, we realised there was a gap in the market for some podcasts that don’t.”
Sound Heap is available weekly on all podcast providers from Wednesday 2 June.
